After launching her career on stage, the Scottish actress made the jump to British television with feature roles in made-for-TV movies and on drama series like "Play for Today" (BBC, 1970-1984) and "Shoestring" (BBC, 1979-1980).

But it was the actress' compelling portrayal of the resolute but compassionate housekeeper Mrs. Hughes on the critically-acclaimed "Downton Abbey" (ITV; PBS, 2011- ), a period drama series that highlighted the class divide between the upper-class and their servants, that made Logan a household name and gained her a slew of fans around...
